David Shuster talked to blogger Shannyn Moore about Sarah Palin's latest antics in Alaska where she again seems to be putting her political aspirations before the good of her state. You can read more at Shannyn's blog on the subject here: Palin’s Pitbull Lipstick Wearing Thin. From the post:
That is the phrase both sides of the aisle in Juneau are using to describe Governor Palin as of late. For months, the wheels on the Straight Talk Express have been rattling, and now they are coming off. That may sound like a good thing to all the people who have been thrown under it, but for the state of Alaska, it’s just dangerous. Whether we voted for the bus driver or not, we’re passengers, and the cliffs are steep.
A senior member of the leadership staff made two copies of an Anchorage Daily News article last week. One was given to the legislator and the other to a member of Palin’s staff. The article reported Sarah Palin’s agreement to speak at the Vanderburgh County Right to Life dinner in Evansville, Indiana, on April 16th. It also stated her commitment to speak at a breakfast the next day for S.M.I.L.E., a nonprofit organization for people with family members who have Down syndrome.
This was NEWS to the legislator and RELEVANT, considering the governor would be missing in action for most of the last week of the session. The final week is certainly the busiest and most critical as the clock winds down to complete state business.
